    Sever idle but using a lot of processor time

    I have noticed that despite none of the Squeeze boxes being turned "on"
    (just displaying time), the slim-server seems to be using 30%+ of my
    processor time. I have an XP box 2.8Ghz, 1GB RAM, but I am not sure why a
    server which ought to be idle is using so much processing time being idle?
    I am on version 5.1.1 and wonder if there was perhaps a problem here?

    Sever idle but using a lot of processor time

    That's very strange, it shouldn't use more than 1% of CPU time when
    idling. Is it possible it's still scanning your music library or
    importing the iTunes Music Library or MoodLogic information?

    This might want to end up in the FAQ.
